Sunday Mail wants scooters for photo shoot!!

Discussion in 'Scooters' started by Anthony, Aug 9, 2006.

  1. I have just been called by Sunday Mail to do a story and photo shoot of Adelaide scooter riders.

    I want as many scooter riders with their scooters as possible to be available on Wednesday (16th Aug), at (5.30pm). The newspaper will take a few photos and we definately encourage any female riders to come along.... you know how it goes, they want to make scooter riding "socially acceptable" and "fun".

    I urge everyone to come along, vespa, honda, whatever you have.

    We need to publicise as much as possible and make people aware of scooter riders and scooter issues.

    Please contact me via email or mobile so I can let you know where to meet.

  2. I bet they'll only cast scootering in a "socially acceptable" and "fun" if you guys can get enough photogenic 18 year old female scooterists to turn up.

    That's how the photojournalism works in News Corp papers, isn't it? :grin:

    Seriously though, good luck with it. Although, given the calibre of Adelaide's print media, I wouldn't get my hopes up too high about this being a credible story that paints scooterists in an entirely good light.
  3. apparantly the editor is also a scooter rider, so I am hoping he would be kind. :)
  4. Rescheduled to same time and location on Wednesday (16th Aug)

    Photographer has been called out urgently, sorry for the inconvinence.

    Please re-confirm availability on here, or via email or SMS.

  5. 3rd time lucky... date changed.

    Same time and still Same location.

    Anyone else who can make it, please contact me.

  6. Yeah make all you scooter riders look good. But what about us riders that don't have sccoters huh? Whose going to look out for us? :p
  7. Pull your head in, sketchie.
    You had your chance to buy a scooter, and you blew it.
